About The Owner

We have holidayed in Cornwall for over 30 year, but about 15 years ago we decided to make Falmouth our main holiday destination and bought our lovely apartment at Melvill Court. Our 3 boys are just about grown up now but we all still enjoy regular trips down to Falmouth because it has so much to offer all ages and at all times of the year. We started letting our apartment to a select few when we weren't using it and now we have 2 apartment that we let out. Holidays are very important to me, you wont get a more fussy holiday maker than me, so be assured I strive to get it just right for our guests.

Why The Owner chose Truro & Falmouth

Location! You can walk to the beach, restaurants, shops and harbour. There's plenty to do in Falmouth to keep the whole family happy, and as our boys have got older they have been able to do their own thing during the day and we all meet up in the evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Debbie

Just a line to say that we had two lovely weeks in Falmouth, and really enjoyed your great apartment.

The shipping in Falmouth Bay has been a constant source of interest and curiosity, and I have spent many minutes glued to the binoculars! We hope to be back.

Gylly Beach
Nearest Beach
0.5 Miles
Gyllyngvase beach and Gylly beach cafe
Car: not necessary

So many places are easily accessible either by foot, ferry, train or bus. It’s not necessary to use the car. The closest beach is Gyllyngvase with its blue flag status and exceptionally popular Gylly café. Follow the coastal path on to Swanpool beach or beyond to Maenporth beach. Both beaches have a café and a well rated restaurant. Head in the opposite direction and you pass Castle beach on your way to Pendennis castle.

Around the town and harbour you’ll find interesting shops, galleries and numerous restaurants. Falmouth is also home to Cornwall’s National Maritime museum.

You can walk (or drive) to the harbour and take a ferry to places like Truro, St Mawes or Flushing. From Flushing you can take a beautiful scenic walk to Mylor. So many places to explore!

You can take the train to Truro for some great shopping and sightseeing.

The lovely gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah are only a 15 minute drive away, and usually when you visit Trebah your ticket allows you entry for the whole week-my family’s favourite garden.

Then of course Falmouth is well positioned for exploring the rest of Cornwall.

Highly recommended

  • 4 of 5

Amazing views from lounge and kitchen windows and of course, from the balcony.

Everything you could wish for is available, it is a real home from home.

Debbie is very helpful and always happy to help.

Perfect apartment in fabulous setting.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as listed but the photos do not do it justice, it is very spacious and light.

The grounds are beautiful.

The apartment was immaculate, there was only one issue which I emailed Debbie about and she responded very quickly. The kitchen has every possible utensil, pot and pan you could every want, not that we did any cooking, but if you do everything is there.

You can see for miles from the balcony, a lovely setting for a leisurely breakfast or for sitting with a glass of wine whilst reading.

This was our first visit to Falmouth and we are already thinking about returning next year for 2 weeks, we will be re-booking this apartment.

There are two beaches within a short walk of the apartment and both are beautiful, just wish we'd had the weather to spend more time on them.

The location of the apartment is ideal, away from the hustle and bustle but not that far out you need to drive, you could park your car and not use it again until it was time to leave.

There was a large selection of DVDs and games in the apartment, great for a takeaway and bottle of wine night in.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Falmouth, I could not fault it.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

we had a wonderful vacation at this apartment. Very clean, spacious, the bedrooms, beds where very comfortable, very quiet also during the night. If you want to cook, the kitchen is a dream, has everything. We used only the washing machine, as we went out for dinner. The location is great, walking distance to the beach, about 5-7 minutes to the Gylly Beach Cafe and from there one can walk into town, or to the castle on a nice promenade. Or from the apartment to the other side and you are in town, about 7-10 minutes walk. Everything like Pubs, restaurants are in walking distance. Also its a nice spot if you want to visit St. Michael, Land’s End, St. Ives, Minack Theater etc. all around 40 minutes drive. It’s easy to drive in and out of the town from the apartment. We can really recommend it.

Comfortable Penthouse Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, modern and delightfully bright. It is in a good location, being far enough away from the hubbub of the town centre whilst still being within easy walking distance of the town and beaches. It has all the facilities you could wish for, right down to fresh milk in the fridge!

The property is maintained to a very high standard and is scrupulously clean throughout. The owner is friendly and the booking process is very straightforward. I would certainly recommend this property to friends or relatives.

Lovely apartment perfect get away from a busy life

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, clean and bright with everything you need for a stay away from home. Situated between Falmouth and Swanpool being just a short walk to Gyllyngvase beach. We have stayed here three years in a row and the quality of the accommodation has remaind well above average. Contact with the owner has always been easy and freindly. I would certainly recommend staying here to family and friends.
